Sunday, August 10th

Happy Sunday!  I know you’re probably so sick of hearing me say this all summer long but today was truly another beautiful day in Starrucca, PA.  Today was clear blue skies in the morning and mostly sunny in the afternoon with temps up to about 80 degrees.  It’s finally warming up to summer temperatures once again.

Today was our 3rd session trip to Cooperstown to the Baseball Hall of Fame.  Lots of campers, both boys and girls, went on the trip to enjoy a day of everything baseball.

Last night’s evening activity, Miss ILC, was hysterical!  Our campers laughed the entire night while our counselors looked pretty silly up there on stage dressed up as women singing, showing off their talents, and answering questions about world peace (Ha!).  It was a fun, memorable night for everyone here at Island Lake.

Tonight’s evening activity is the SOCIAL!  DJ Dennis will be here at ILC yet one more time to rock the house (or shall I say, rock the camp gym).  Yet again, the girls will get dressed up and some will doll themselves with make-up while the boys, well, we’ll be lucky if they shower and comb their hair.

Tomorrow morning, bright and early at 6:30am we leave for our teen trip to Toronto, Canada.  Our 9th grade and up campers who signed up for the trip, along with 10 staff including myself (Wendy) and Trip, will be heading out of camp on two coach buses and we will make our way to Toronto for 2 days and then Niagara Falls for 2 days.  Everyone is very excited for the trip.  We will post photos of the trip with our daily summer photos when we return on Friday.

Parents of campers on the teen trip, a reminder that if you’d like to speak with your child while we are away, just call the hotel at night time after 9-10pm and ask to be connected to your child’s room.  Hotel details were mailed to you this past June.  If you’ve misplaced it then feel free to call camp for the information.

Today’s special feature,…SKATEPARK!

While I’m away on the Canada trip, Dustin will take over the blog for me.  No doubt, he’ll do a fantastic job reporting to you what’s going on here at ILC while also entertaining you.  We’ll be back home to camp late Thursday night, so I’ll be back behind the keyboard once again on Friday.  Until then, ILC U THERE!
